I rarely take photos that I like of my horses, in part because they are both 30ish now and showing their age. But I like these…..
The chair series continues…..
So, I know Havoc has grown a lot, that is what puppies do, but I thought these two shots really show both his absurdity and his change in size.
Finally had a bit of sun the other day, so I had another go at snow photography. My previous attempt on an overcast day was disappointing at best.
This is snow on an overcast day, flat, drab, bland, decidedly not blue, which is the way I prefer my snow. It’s a good thing I was more interested in Trouble than the snow.
Yesterday they threatened us with 5 inches of snow and we barely got 2 inches. Today we were promised rain and this is what we got
I have been using the few bits on sun I get in my house (when it’s not snowing) to work on my pet portraits.
My house gets hardly any direct sun, it’s on the north side of a hill and shaded by mature trees…..it’s wonderful in the summer…..but you starve for vitamin D in the winter. So it’s interesting to try and use the little bit I do get. I’ll have to see what else I can do with it, besides pet portraits.
Still house bound, though at this point it’s the fault of my truck not the snow. However the result is the same…..very limited subject matter to photograph, basically I’m stuck with the critters…..
I find it interesting how the lighting in this image makes it look like I photo shopped it together (I didn’t). It’s the product of two separate unbalanced lighting sources and a bit too much burning and dodging (done for clarity) making the over all lighting look unnatural/fake. Odd, isn’t it?
This is what we had after the first snow this year, we skated NYC got slammed.
The second storm, boredom really starting to set in.
This is Trouble in the first half of this storm.
What I’m waiting for.
Even if I’m complaining I will take the snow and cold over the flooding in England or the drought in California.
Maybe more soon…….
